Ontario taxi fleet expands with Link-Belt all-terrain

PDI National Cranes is a taxi rental business so being able to quickly setup for varying cell towers or other applications is important.

DI National Cranes, part of the PDI Group of Companies in King, Ontario, Canada has purchased a new Link-Belt Cranes 175|AT all terrain crane. The crane was added to the company’s taxi fleet which specializes in commercial, industrial and general construction in the greater Toronto, Ontario area.

According to Dallen Rands, branch manager for PDI National Cranes, the 175-ton all-terrain crane is ideal for cell tower work because of ease of transport, one overflow truck and quick setup time. 

“In Ontario we can run boom over the front, so no dolly is required,” added Rands. “Then, we only need one truck and once we stack counterweight on the deck of the crane from the overflow, now we have a clean work platform for the fly – which we typically use the SmartFly for cell tower work. It’s a very clean setup without anything extra.”
